One kid name a monkey in his sweatshirt and the other has a tiger. Both animals are intelligent and survive succesfully. Just because one is a major predator and the other not, doesn't mean there should be some racial controversy there...


Top 10 for 2019: Becky Lynch, Nikki Cross, Ronda Rousey, Billie Kay, Peyton Royce, Toni Storm, Carmella, Taynara Conti, Jessamyn Duke, Bayley.
Seth Rollins
Elias
Jeff Hardy
Shinsuke Nakamura
Adam Cole
EC3
Aiden English
Roderick Strong
AJ Styles
Cesaro

Re: WWE Superstar Calls Out H & M For Racial Profiling!

I mean, you could make a connection, but I'm sure it wasn't meant like that. Same with the people who rage and got "professional offended" when Georgia's Department of Corrections's Christmas card was done with a cotton field in the background, while they have black employees.

People need to stop being offended over anything and reaching for connotations that most likely weren't made. It's annoying as shit when its done so often.

I mean, I'm not saying they intended for that ad to be racist, but they've GOT to have PR people on payroll to say, "hey, uh, this might be a bad look, let's switch these sweatshirts in case someone gets the wrong idea here."

I was reading tweets about the hoodie. H&M also removed another hoodie with the words 'Dogfight in Random Alley' on it because apparently the boys and girls at PETA didn't like it.

Honestly, I don't think it was intentional, but that makes it somewhat even worse because how goddamn dense and stupid do you have to be to approve that without thinking? The sweatshirt design is ugly and stupid anyways, but that ad is just...something else.
